“We never cast John Abraham for ‘Jazbaa’. Those were rumours,” Gupta said while interacting with twitterati during a live chat session for a media house.

According to reports, John was supposed to play the male lead in the film, but things took a different turn when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was finalised for the female lead. Gupta asserted that these were “rumours”.

Gupta also noted that he wants to bring a “violent love story” alive on the silver screen.

“If I find an exciting script, would love to do a violent love story. Best family drama to me is Mahabharat,” he said.
